Police Make Appeal To People Who Knew Richard Wallace

Wellington Police are appealing to the friends and acquaintances of Richard 
Wallace to contact them as they establish his movements in the week prior to 
his death.

Mr Wallace, 70, was found dead in his Strathmore Park home on the morning of 
Thursday 22 July.

"Mr Wallace did have injuries and we are working to understand when and how 
these occurred. Because of this, his death is still being treated as 
unexplained at this time," says Detective Inspector Darrell Harpur.

“It is important we provide his family with answers and so we are asking 
those who knew him to provide us with details about his movements between 
Monday 19 July and Thursday 22 July."

The investigation team has determined Mr Wallace travelled with another 
person to the Strathmore Park and Miramar shops on Monday evening before 
returning home sometime after 7pm when he then entertained friends.

“If you visited Mr Wallace that Monday evening, or in the day’s after, we 
are very keen to talk with you," says Detective Inspector Harpur.

Anyone with information can contact the investigation team via 105 and quote 
file number 210722/6922.

Information can also be provided anonymously via Crime Stoppers on 0800 555
